Jim Ross: Cole’s On-Air Character Is Close To The Real Thing

Posted by Brad Davis February 26, 2011 9 Comments

Jim Ross updated his blog and discussed a variety of topics, including WWE’s recent signing of Mistico, who will go by the name Sin Cara.

On Michael Cole in real-life:
“Emailer…Is Michael Cole’s TV persona more like his real life persona than when he played the straight man/corporate announcer? I’d probably say, yes. Cole’s is not the laid back, easy going guy in real life that he portrayed early in his announcing career. He has taken to being a ‘jerk’ on TV like our sauce to ribs.”

On WWE Signing Mistico: “I applaud the way that WWE introduced Sin Cara to the WWE Universe as he will arrive in WWE after a few weeks of advanced TV promotion already meaning ‘something’ and feeling much more significant than other newcomers. Very innovative offensive performer along the lines of the great Rey Mysterio. Sin Cara has a magnificent opportunity to become a global star in WWE. The final verdict, as always, will be rendered by the paying customers based on how well the gifted athlete delivers inside the squared circle. It will be interesting to see what brand, Raw or Smackdown, gets the opportunity to showcase Sin Cara.”

On Ric Flair:
“Happy Birthday to my dear, long time friend Ric Flair. ‘Naitch’ is one of a kind and the mold was certainly broken with Ric. He was and is simply a natural at the biz of sports entertainment and he can still verbalize with the very best alive. Some of my work calling Flair-Steamboat, Flair-Terry Funk, and Flair-Sting in WCW always brings back exhilarating memories of doing old school, play by play and being able to add legit emotion based on the personal issues and meaningful championships that were involved.”

On a Sting vs Undertaker match: “Speaking of ‘Taker, that Sting vs. Undertaker WM27 match that many just knew was going to happen at WM27 looks a little ‘iffy.’

      Cole is a douche.

      Okay listen. I used to like this site, and would really like to visit it now that its been revamped, but your damn pop-ups have viruses in them and can only be closed by opening my task manager and ending whatever I’m doing. Really, dude, check your pop-ups, because I am not going to virus my computer up to visit here. Don’t believe me, has anyone here reading this won the free iPod giveaway yet?

      • R-Thunder

        You believe that free giveaway thing?

      • Hobble

        I think your computer already has viruses. This site doesn’t have popups for me. Besides, if you aren’t using internet security like adblocks, and if you’re clicking on ipod giveaway ads than you’re begging for viruses and malware.

          I just think it’s funny that he thinks this site is giving him viruses, yet he keeps coming back.

          • Hobble

            Indeed, not to mention that pop ups by themselves can’t just give you viruses. If he’s not bright enough to look into internet security than he deserves computer problems.

            • Random-English-Fella

              I just hope hes not given his bank details to a Nigerian prince

    • Damn

      Actually so called pop-ups can indeed contain the virus. You would be surprised what some web pages can launch upon your computer. By the way… I won a free ipad. All I have to do is click on this banner. Thanks. By the way #2 this new layout sucks.
